Some of the best flavors can come from a handful of simply prepared ingredients. Alfalfa’s cilantro lime shrimp is a perfect example, and it only takes a few minutes to make. This preparation can be used many different ways, over rice, on a big beautiful salad, or simply by itself as shown here… How about shrimp tacos? Shredded cabbage with some mayo, lime, and a touch of garlic served on a warm tortilla. Yummy!
